    Welcome :D

    Just a quick note for UK users about setting the correct time zone in your 'Profile'. If it is British summer-time, and you are in the UK and select 'GMT' as the time zone (as one would expect you to!) then unfortunately, when you are viewing the time that posts were made, the time will be incorrectly set one hour early.

    For example, if you post a message at 8.31pm and then immediately go back to view it, the posting time will state 7.31pm.

    There is a very quick fix for this - simply set the time zone as 'GMT +1' in your profile (there is a link to your profile at the top of every page) and every message you view from thereonin will display the correct time. Likewise, when it is British winter-time, you need to put the setting back to simply 'GMT'.

    As always, if you have any questions or need any help, don't hesitate to PM me (click 'My Mail' at the top of the page).

    Best wishes,
    Laura B
